I think this ad first aired before I joined this forum a few years ago, but I remember how I hated it worse than hell itself the first time it assaulted my senses. For some reason known only to God, & maybe not even Him, they've decided to start re-running it.

Pinch PUUUUUUUUUUUKE!!!!!!!!!!! DeadDeadDeadDead
 
Rarely do you see a commercial so pretentious that they actually gave it a title.
 
Puh - LEASE.
 
The lyrics to the audio track go beyond pretentious & past nauseating to land somewhere in the realm of "you want to jam a screwdriver in your own ears just so you'll never have to worry about the possibility of ever hearing it again".
 
Quote Early light breaks thru

Music & dance calling you

Just need that mountain grown lift
 
Before you share your gift
 
Now the thrill of the sound
 
Making their hearts pound
 
The best part of waking up
 
Is Folgers in your cup
 
 
Absolutely stomach turning.
 
"Music & dance calling you" my ass.
 
What is so sickening & pathetic about this crap, is that it makes Folgers look like they're trying to associate their product with a "certain type" of person that some marketing research bullsh*t told them they should. Phony-ass crap.
 
I think it might've been produced at the height of the "Riverdance" craze in an attempt to capitalize on it.
 
The only thing that could possibly make it worse, would've been to add video of some precious little leotard-clad dance-poodle twit hopping around in her toe-shoes on a bare wood dance studio floor.
 
Oh, wait.... they did that too!!! WHAT A FEELING!!!! Disapprove
 
DAMN!!!! Now my TV screen is so encrusted with vomit I can't watch it anymore.
 
Thanks Folgers.
 
Here.... sicken yourselves.

I'll bet this Folger's woman is friends with the red-haired girl riding her Schwinn in the Zyrtec ads.

Yeah, those two & the Yoplait Bitches probably all get together to drink cofee, eat yogurt & pop Zyrtec while they complain about sh*t.
 
Of course, after all that coffee & yogurt, "sh*t" is probaly something they have plenty to complain about.

They believe we unsophisticated and uncultured buffoons don't recognize the "Riverdance Ballet" copycats?
 
If I ran into something like this before my second cup of the day, I'd be in cuffs before my third.
 
And they'd need mops and sponges to clean things up.
 
 
I saw this ONE TIME, here - and I was fortunate. The network interrupted the commercial.

Everytime I hear the words "music & dance calling you", my skin immediately begins to crawl.
 
Once it crawled so far, I had to follow it outside & chase it down in the driveway.
 
I think it was trying to run away.

Unless Charlie Harper enters the scene, in which case, the complaining bitches turn into a bevy of happy, bikini-clad babes, drinking wine and carrying on, on Charlie's deck.
 
One of my favorite episodes.  LOL

I dunno, perhaps it's because I enjoy Irish dancing, but I like seeing pretty ginger haired ladies dancing anytime/anywhere.

Oh! They're selling coffee?

My mistake, me mind just drifted to seeing pretty freckle-faced ginger-haired beauties doing their Celtic dancing.

I'm sure I would enjoy seeing that too.... maybe if I were in a pub or somewhere & the ladies were just regular, everyday gals having some fun.
 
But in the context of this pretentious, nauseating commercial, it's just a whole different thing.

This is all giving me ideas that will probably lead to very bad things...
 
1.) All the prancing and dancing.
 
2.) NOTHING should EVER move very fast around MissyDWolf, when she is waking up at the crack of dawn (can be dangerous). 
 
3.) I *always* bring MissyDWolf her first cup of coffee, every morning.
 
I'm thinkin' about trying my very own version of 'Riverdance', first thing tomorrow, as I bring her coffee. More than likely, I'll trip in the twilight and damage myself on various pieces of furniture, while spilling coffee all over her...then I'll get hurt.
 
But I'm gonna do it!

Why so much hate for this one?   It has to be the least offensive ad I've seen.    I usually don't really notice it since it isn't loud, obnoxious and stupid like most other ads are.    Plus I like the mini Riverdance at the end of the ad.

The 60's and 70's seemed to boast TONS of coffee commercials and they always had the same premise:  some woman crying that her husband was about to divorce her because she could NOT make good coffee!  I remember Mrs. Olsen and the Maxwell House guy who lived in the supermarket and always showed up at just the right time to rescue some bimbo with bland brewing skills. How about the old "switcheroo" where "they" replaced the coffee at LeCirque (was it?) with Folger's Instant.  There's a reason they call it instant coffee...for there's only an INSTANT when it actually tastes like coffee.  Don't get me started on SANKA!  Tongue

cardassian: please reformat your video links, to use TUBE tags, instead.

If you click the link below the edit box, to enable BBcodes, you'll see the correct syntax to use.

Also, no html in this forum.

Thanks!

Carry on....

What is so hated about it is that it is soooo frickin phony & pretentious. It's just another modern day stereotype where the "coffee achievers" (as the yuppies in those coffee commercials have been sarcastically referred to in the past), are young, beautiful & precious little dancers or artists or they have some other kind of rarefied talent that we normal workaday slugs can only envy, but maybe if we drink Folgers coffee like they do, we can be like them just a little bit.

Are you all telling me that YOU do not get up in the morning and do a little jig while drinking your Folgers?  I thought that was normal.  Especially wearing tights.

I think what irks me a bit is just how "happy" they all are while they are practicing the routine and the end.  Likely, a bit too happy.  Even after drinking Folgers.  It is "over-acting" if I've ever seen it.

I wonder if Charlie Manson ever gets served Folgers coffee in the pen.
 
 
Maybe for their next commercial, instead of the Riverdance, the Folger's people can use this dance:

The best part of wakin up is a hit of acid in your cup?
 
Just think, if he hadn't gotten caught & convicted, some lucky people in some lucky American city would be enjoying the sight of that dance everyday on their street corners.
 
In between car windshield cleanings.

Probably best to have your coffee before "strapping in".
 
So many things we guys never think of....
